Reprint in the USA

"The Private Library" blog recently enthused over Bewick's vignettes.

"Of course, many other artists have created vignettes for books, but few have captured as well as Bewick the human condition in such a small space. Because original copies of Bewick's Quadrupeds and British Birds are quite expensive in anything approaching Fine condition, most book collectors will likely have to settle for a reprint (such as that depicted ...). "

You can find the full text here.

The reprint they have in mind is from the University of Chicago Press.

"A General History of Quadrupeds, The Figures Engraved on Wood With a Foreword by Yann Martel" published in June 2009.
